Less is definately more. As a Speaker Coach, my mantra is - make each word count.

How to Make Presentations 'Natural'

How to Make Presentations 'Natural' | Speaking in Public | Scoop.it
If you want your presentations to look spontaneous - you'd better practice hard and often

Read this Blog for further information on what it takes to prepare properly.
